Christmas came early in 2020 for the hacking, ransomware, and phishing community. The arrival of a worldwide pandemic meant that the manufacturers of “threat” were able to put aside the “inheritance” emails and place all their efforts into leveraging COVID-19 to solicit netizens to click their way to an attack.

This is an unfortunate side-effect of the current pandemic but it raises the question, who works toward limiting the effects of these attacks?

CRN recently reported the a U.S. District court order permitted Microsoft to seize and take control of specific domains used by cybercriminals who had used coronavirus phishing campaigns to target Microsoft customers.

The cybercriminals had crafted the attacks, using deceptive messages about the pandemic to “induce targeted victims to click on malicious links.” From there the hackers could take control of previous credential use.

Microsoft’s immense size and resource-rich teams were able to identify and take legal action to control the domains associated with the attacks. This level of customer care is the first indication we have seen from our vendor partners that they are willing to go to great lengths to secure client data.

While this cat and mouse game will remain part of our daily lives for the foreseeable future it is refreshing that we can help mitigate the attack potential by layering security and partnering with vendors like Microsoft who have made a commitment. through action, to securing our data.

Is Your Cybersecurity Plan Up To Date?

Never before has keeping your cybersecurity plan up to date proven to be so important. Most cyber threats are beyond your control, but what isn’t beyond your control is the way you go about your cybersecurity strategy. It should be risk-based, and you should begin planning preemptively so that any attacks on you or your business will do minimal or no damage.

Having a risk-based approach to cybersecurity is essential, and begins with having an understanding of your data and who may want to corrupt it. Here is why you need to keep your cybersecurity plan up to date:

Security Risks Are Very High

New cyber threats are emerging every day and constantly evolving. While it can be considered unreasonable to protect yourself against every conceivable threat, with best practices, you can protect yourself against a great deal of them. More and more dangerous hacking tools continue to arise, so detecting and countering these new threats should remain a top priority for everyone who has access to the Internet.

Personal Information

If you have access to the Internet, it is highly likely that you use some form of social media. Whether it is Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, LinkedIn, or anything else, these present outlets for you to share personal information. While it can be nice to share that information with others, you should understand how to properly protect it.

The majority of the world accesses the Internet through smartphones and tablets. These days, we may find ourselves sharing more data online than we even realize. As an example, many apps being used today require you to share personal data in order to use them. This can provide the perfect medium for potential hackers to gain access to your information.

Hackers Are Getting More Creative

When analyzing the current state of data leaks and cyber attacks, criminals are not only changing their tactics, but they are getting increasingly creative. That is why you should be encouraged to beat the hackers to the punch. This goes not only for individuals, but companies as well.

You should always be on the lookout for the latest security threats and be privy to potential risks before they harm you. Make sure the tools and practices you have in place are up to the challenge.

Remember To Protect Yourself

In this day and age, being vigilant and safe over the Internet is more important than ever. There are some simple tips that you can use to protect yourself, such as avoiding interacting with messages and links from unknown sources and using strong passwords; but you may want help from cyber security experts to make sure that you are also using the advanced tools and practices that are available.
